    Default Tightwad Tuesday 9/8

    We woke up late this morning and Ethan missed the bus. I don't mind taking him to school. I mind change. So now I am in a sour mood! I will be fine in a bit. LOL

    Lots of cleaning and deciding which planned meal to have!


    So what about my fellow fruglettes?

    I woke up early for some strange reason, I don't have to be at work for another 5ish hours. I officially start my job today, no longer in the training stage. So I move up to $10.10 for job pay, kinda excited about that.

    Got nothing planned for after work yet.

    Have a Good Day People!

    I scheduled today off to extend the holiday weekend. It's been a while since I've had a day off without the kids home so I'm excited and hope to enjoy getting a lot done.

    So far:
    ~ 2nd load of laundry in
    ~ boys off to school
    ~ husband off to work
    ~ pocketbook half cleaned out
    ~ looked over some tax bills
    ~ refrigerator cleaned out
    ~ litter box changed
    ~ library and post office run (that I keep forgetting to grab all the stuff for) together (I've been to the post office 3 times this week. I will remeber EVERYTHING this time.)
    ~ beds made
    ~ crockpot going
    ~ dishes done

    Still on the agenda:
    ~ jog
    ~ upper body workout
    ~ library and post office runs
    ~ look for DS#2 a tennis racket
    ~ clear off the computer desk
    ~ enter the weekend spending
    ~ do some mending
    ~ clean out at least 5 of the files in the file cabinet
    ~ schedule the dog for an appointment with the vet
    ~ pick up boys from tennis
    ~ take DS#2 to soccer practice
    ~ prep lunches for tomorrow
    ~ vacuum
    ~ do the bathroom floors
    ~ play on and off on the computer.

    and then whatever else hits me. I am looking foward to the busy day. Hope everyone else is as well!

    Good morning everyone. Today we have a roofer coming out to checkout our roof, we're pretty sure we need work done on the screened in porch portion of it. We also have an appointment with the lawyer at 4:30 and I have a meeting at 7:00 tonight. Before all that I need to put laundry away, put dishes away, sweep, vacuum, dust, iron dry clothes from the drying rack, pick up house, wash the laundry room rugs. If I have any time left, I need to organize my books in my home office.

    Have a great day!

    I was up early, had my coffee, packed my orders for USPS and FedEx, worked up a quote, and now I am ready this forum. I will take a shower shortly, take my packages to USPS and FedEx and MAYBE go to the grocery salvage store.

    I am going to do some housework the rest of the day, Hopefully I will get more orders to pack. All the bills are paid through the 12th.

    Work, homework, early dinner, dd's soccer practice, PTA social and then bedtime routine. No time to spend money. Although, I will be shelling out the money to join the PTA. I think it's 7 bucks?

    I'm on load four of laundry
    Unloaded and loaded the dishwasher
    Folded some towels and put away
    Spent some time on the phone with a friend

    Still need to.....
    finish up the laundry
    get a pork roast in the oven for dinner
    spend some time with the kiddos when they get in

    Have a good day everyone!

    Today is my day off. Helped oldest DS with laundry (switched them out for him while he was sleeping). Shopped the co-op, the grocery store and the pet store. Now we are done for the next two weeks except for milk and bread.
    I need to do a little house work but am putting it off untill DD gets home and done with her school work since I am happy holding DGS (7 wks old) and just sitting looking at him.

    I woke up obscenely early, but it turned out to be a good thing 'cause the FAX wasn't working, and I had to take all my last week's nurses notes to Indianapolis so they can pay me. I was not very happy about this, and hope I was not too obnoxious to my innocent case manager.
    Laundry
    Taught my first Anatomy and Chemistry labs to the homeschool teens
    Lots of my homework to do
    DD is on her way back to North Carolina, so I'll call her a couple of times to check on her
    Last of the straightening up/ putting away from our two weekend pitch-ins!!
    New episode of The First 48 on tonight, so I need to get everything squared away by then!!

    I slept in until 8am, on purpose. I had planned to spend the day doing lots of cleaning but hubby's boss called to tell him he needed him to drive tonight which means he was home all day until about 1/2 an hour ago. I did manage to do 3 loads of laundry, clean off a shelf in the fridge again, fix dinner do dishes, and hubby got the trash out for tomorrow's pick-up, and I cleaned the trash cans.Tomorrow it's back to work for 2 days.

    Home from a successful dental visit, visiting FV and then to do dishes before I start working on the pictures!!

    Must admit that there are times that I totally enjoy being at home by myself.
